A crack on solid ground


Dear
I hope you feel the same way
Because I still do everyday
Four full orbits after May
That is when we came out to play

Solid sunlight shining sharing its rays
Sweet sounds smothered our gaze
Sour still stalks stalking our special smile
Above the smile our eyes shared that we'd go the mile

In three orbits by two
I heard a crumbling sound
Choking our connection before it completely grew
I hoped it was nothing for to this creature I was bound
The sadness held me so high, I almost flew
When I heard that there was a crack on solid ground

It is destructive to explain
Living on unbearable pain
I felt our future was slain
For once it was healthier than grain
Your affection was the only thing I stood to gain
I couldn't care less if they said I had no brain

A crack like no other
Left me crying but not to have another
When I thought of you I'd be dew
To all my sorrows you were lather
And now I'm about to lose you
Just after I have lost my father.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
